MOSCOW, December 7 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian Emergencies Control Ministry (EMERCOM) is to send out a special motor convoy with humantarian supplies for the Kosovo Serbs.
An official at the EMERCOM information department has told Itar-Tass, "At 05:45, Moscow time, on Wednesday, a motor convoy consisting of 25 special-purpose vehicles will set out from the EMERCOM's Rescue Center 179 in the city of Noginsk, Moscow Region, for Serbia to deliver power plants, blankets, foodstuffs, crockery, and field furniture intended for Serbian citizens." The overall weight of the humanitarian supplies is 284 tonnes.
The motor convoy will run across the territories of Russia, Ukraine, Romania, and Serbia via Noginsk, Kaluga, Bryansk, Kiev, Chernovtsy, Bistrica, Alba-Julia, Nis, and Kosovo's Mitrovica.
In November this year, a Russian IL-76 plane brought a batch of humanitarian aid to the Serbian city of Nis for Kosovo Serbs -- food, stoves, and sets of crockery. The aggregate weight of supplies was 36 tonnes. With the assistance of the national branch of the International Committee of the Red Cross, the supplies were delivered to Kosovo and distributed among those in need of them.
This year Russia also assisted Serbia in putting out wildfires by sending a Be-200 amphibian plane and a Mi-26 helicopter there to help in the effort. A Russian-Serbian center for control of emergencies in the Balkans opened in Nis in October.
